Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither--
whatever they do prospers.
PICTURE A FOREST AND MANY TREES ~
I have heard this statement before that says, "you can't see the forest for the trees". What does that mean anyway? The Dictionary says:
An expression used of someone who is too involved in the details of aproblem to look at the situation as a whole. For example ~ “The congressman became so involved in the wording of his bill that he couldn't see the forest for the trees; he did not realize that the bill could never pass.”
I see the importance of nothing focusing on the wrong thing in life. We get overwhelmed and our situations might not be as big as they seem. Psalm 1 tells us to delight in the loud and mediate on him day and night. Wow a mind that is constant in believing and reaching out to God. A mind that trust beyond a human understanding. We must be careful in life because there are people who enter our lives who drain us. They take our energy and attention away from God and his plan. We tend to see a big forest instead of seeing a solution.
BE LIKE A TREE PLANTED ~
By the streams of water
Water is so important in all of our lives. We need it to drink, stay clean, water plants, makes thing grow and so much more. So the water of our soul is much needed as well. Turning our thoughts from the negative and planting positive watering thoughts in our own heads. A mind that is determined to serve God through it all. It's not always easy when you see a person do wrong and you just keep trying to do the right thing. That person can take us down little by little and we might not see it.
BE CAREFUL WHERE YOU PLANT YOURSELF ~
Stay in God's word, promises and ways
Walk in obedience to all that the LORD your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess ~ Deuteronomy 5:33
Let us not forget that the devil has a plan to stop you. He doesn't want you to succeed in life and definitely doesn't want yo to prosper. Turn those thoughts quickly and drink that cool refreshing water from God. His word (Bible) brings us stories and victories of life. Sometimes we must face giants in lives and see the blessing of God.
You were design to be a light in a dark world. You were design to see the light through the forest and let God use your life in many ways. Saying yes to God, is saying no to somethings that were never meant to do or be in life. Purpose this day the best you can and see yourself the way God does in life. You are like a tree planted by water of life. Think positive!
